The legend of Tim Tebow the baseball player is growing.
After being promoted to Advanced A with the New York Mets (St. Lucie), Tebow has had really good plate appearances and looks like he’s improving. Entering Thursday, Tebow was hitting .327 and slugging .551 with 10 RBIs and three home runs. In 49 at bats, Tebow had struck out just nine times.
Tebow hit a walk-off home run Thursday night against the Daytona Tortugas. With the game tied at 4-4 in the bottom of the seventh (on double header days, games are just seven innings), Tebow hit the first pitch he saw to opposite field.
As you can see in the videos below, the team and crowd go quite wild — the crowd mostly because of Tebow, and the team probably because it’s the second game of a double header and they’re ready to go home. Nonetheless, Tebow continues making headlines at the plate, and that’s a good thing for his career.
With Thursday’s walk-off, Tebow now has a hit in 11 straight games.
